SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS: Construction at the Wheaton YRE is expected to be completed later this year.  However, the Start/Finish is open for business!  Don't let a little construction dust deter you from enjoying this outstanding walk (voted one of the top 10 in the U.S.).

Our Next Scheduled Event: Saturday, October 17th, Mount Airy, Maryland

  • Join us as we walk through one of our favorite Maryland towns -- Mount Airy, Maryland.  Unlike our year-round trail (which you can also walk if you have the time and energy), the October 17th event will begin with a new rail-to-trail connecting Watkins Park with the railroad station in Old Town.  We will also walk through some lovely new neighborhoods, before returning to Old Town (great restaurants and shops) and our Start Finish in Watkins Park.
